Christina Hardyment's illustrated collection of food writing ranges across the centuries, from Pliny the Elder's report of Cleopatra drinking pearls dissolved in vinegar and Chaucer's Franklin ('Epicurus' very son') to MFK Fisher's cauliflowers in Dijon in 1943. The anthology is arranged by themes such as the art of hospitality, food to impress, love bites, cooks and kitchens and literary recipes, the latter ending with the challenge of the Scripture Cake.
